After 6,992 days of being engaged to one another, Jean Todt and Michelle Yeoh have finally celebrated their wedding!
Jean Todt, a former racing driver and the former CEO of the Formula 1 team Scuderia Ferrari, recently tied the knot with his longtime fiance, Oscar-winning actress Michelle Yeoh. Their wedding comes 19 years after they first decided to marry.
It was former Ferrari F1 driver Felipe Massa who spilled the tea, posting photos of the wedding celebrations on his Instagram with the caption, “Happy marriage, #JeanTodt & #MichelleYeoh love you so much.”
A long time coming
Felipe Massa’s post included what looked to be a card that shared some of the highlights of the newlyweds’ relationship.
Jean Todt and Michelle Yeoh met in Shanghai on June 4, 2004. Just 22 days later, the former Ferrari executive popped the question and asked her to marry him — she said yes! Speed comes with the job, it seems.
Although their relationship took to the next level rather quickly, the wedding itself did not come until 6,992 days later, on July 27, 2023. Their wedding took place in Geneva, Switzerland, and was attended by close members of their family and friends. Felipe Massa, sharing a close relationship with Todt, was also in attendance.
As far as power couples go, these two definitely fit the archetype.
After Jean Todt took over as manager for Ferrari’s Racing Division, he led the Formula 1 team to 14 World Championships, including eight constructors titles and six drivers titles. During his career that saw 106 Grand Prix victories, he got to work and guide some of the best racers in the world, including the seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher.
Michelle Yeoh is no stranger to success herself. She has starred in many highly acclaimed films, and just this year, she became the first-ever Asoam woman to win the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Everything Everywhere All At Once.
Now, both Todt and Yeoh can add their wedding celebration (finally!) to their long list of milestones.
